Congratulations to Justin Moore and his wife Kate! The proud parents of 21-month-old Ella Kole welcome their second daughter, Kennedy Faye Moore, into the world this morning. Born in Justin’s home state, Arkansas, at 7:59 a.m., Kennedy arrived at 7 pounds, 18 ½ inches long.
“Faye was my grandmother’s name, who passed away a couple of years ago, so we thought it would be a great way to remember her,” said Justin. “And, we both just liked Kennedy.”
It’s been a record year for Justin, who topped the Billboard Country Albums and Singles charts earlier this year. Both Outlaws Like Me and its lead single, “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” reached No. 1.
Justin, who just wrapped up a busy year out on the road with Miranda Lambert, as well as his own headlining dates, was home for the birth and plans to spend the next few weeks with his family. The news comes just in time for the Thanksgiving season, which is Justin’s favorite holiday. At the beginning of the new year, he will open for Blake Shelton’s new tour.
